NEW YORK – Cayman Islands Football Association President Jeffrey Webb was the only person nominated for the presidency of CONCACAF and will stand alone for election on May 23 at the confederation’s congress in Budapest, Hungary.
Webb, who has been president of the Cayman Islands federation for the past 21 years, was nominated by 29 of the 40 member associations by the close of the nomination period on Sunday.
He will run to complete the four-year term of Jack Warner, who was elected in May 2010 but resigned all of his positions in football in June after 20 years in the office.
The 47-year-old Webb was appointed chairman of the Caribbean Football Union Normalization Committee in December, charged with rebuilding the regional football body in the wake of last year’s turmoil following Warner’s resignation as president of that organization.

He is the deputy chairman of the FIFA internal audit committee – having been a member since 2002, a member of the FIFA transparency and compliance committee, Caribbean observer on the FIFA executive committee and a member of the CONCACAF youth committee.
“I would like to acknowledge and thank the CONCACAF member associations from across the confederation that have demonstrated their confidence in me through their support of my nomination for president,” Webb said. “I look forward to working with all of the members to strengthen our foundation and build on our unity which has always been our strength.”
CONCACAF has had only three different presidents in its 51-year history: Ramon Coll Jaumet (Costa Rica, 1961-1968), Joaquin Soria Terrazas (Mexico, 1968-1990) and Warner (Trinidad & Tobago, 1990-2011).
